And, as we prepare to go "back to school," I am left reflecting on the incredible experiences we had together over the past three months. Whether it was our membership meeting, our summer screening series, our co-sponsored events in LA and NYC, or our annual co-event sponsorship of the "Sound for Film & TV" event at Sony, I am reinspired and invigorated every time I interact with the talented members of the Cinema Audio Society. And I am not the only one who is blown away by all of you. This year, for example, as in many years past, we dominated the Television Academy nominations and many of us took home gold. Allow me to congratulate the following CAS members who were honored this year with Emmys for their incredible work in the art and craft of sound mixing. Congratulations to Onnalee Blank CAS, Mathew Waters CAS, Ronan Hill CAS, Elmo Ponsdomenech CAS, Benjamin Patrick CAS, Patrick Baltzell CAS, and finally, Tom Fleischman CAS, who is also this year's CAS Career Achievement recipient! And with the Emmys marking the commencement, it is now officially awards season. Entry submission forms for our own CAS Awards went live on the CAS website on Monday, September 23, 2019. We look forward to receiving your submissions and to seeing you at the 56th Annual CAS Awards on Saturday, January 25, 2020, at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The event will be a special time to connect with new friends, reunite with old, and celebrate our amazing community, as well as all of our most recent mixing achievements. Finally, a great continued thanks to the generous volunteerism that powers all of our wonderful events and other member benefits such as the CAS Quarterly, podcasts, web content, and awards show. Members are working behind the curtain with the goal of ensuring a richly rewarding experience for every member of our society. As always, I invite you to join us in our efforts, as well as help us to determine what is the best way to serve the community by reaching out to or Have a wonderful fall season!
